Mental health awareness to be discussed at Cooley's Auburn Hills campus Oct. 11

In support of  Mental Health Awareness Day, WMU-Cooley Law School’s Auburn Hills campus will host the presentation, “Stress in the Legal Field,” featuring Jeffery Zapor, case manager with the Lawyers and Judges Assistance Program.

During Zapors presentation, he will provide information about common stressors and the high rates of depression, anxiety, and substance affecting those in the legal field. He will share his story of addiction and recovery and talk about the stressors that he faced and what he did to cope and eventually turn to sobriety.

Zapor has lectured regularly on substance abuse recovery and the utilization of 12-step programs. He earned his law degree from Capital University Law School and formerly had a small practice focusing on probate law matters. Zabor is a licensed counselor and has been published in the Michigan Bar Journal and will be a presenter at the 2019 American Counseling Association’s Annual Conference.

The presentation will take place Oct. 11 from noon-1 p.m. at Auburn Hills Campus, Room 145, 2630 Featherstone Road.
